An alpha male is not one who simply uses their powers to bully the rest of the group and maintain dominance with fear tactics. A true alpha male is a protector and defender of his kind, recognizing that as a unit they are only as strong as the weakest link & taking initiative to make sure that even the weakest are assisted. We seem to think alpha males are selfish ass holes that possess the most desired things in the group. This is true, but it is respect, amazement, gratitude, appreciation & admiration that truly makes an alpha great & without these he is simply one who got lucky in the genetic lottery. His decisions & what he has earned will always outshine what he has been given.
